. and this going on in washington is a big part of the reason why. before i served in congress i ran a small business in ohio. i was amazed at how different washington d.c. operated than every other business in america. where most american businesses make the hard choices to pay their bills, live within their means. in washington, more spending and more debt is business as usual. well, i've got news for washington, those days are over. president obama came to congress in january and requested businesses as usual. he had ner routine increase in the national debt, but we in the house said not so fast. here was a president asking for the largest debt increase in american history on the heels of the largest spending binge in american history. and here's what we got for that massive spending binge. a new health-care bill that most americans never asked for. a stimulus bill that's more effective in producing material for late night comedians than it was in producing jobs. and a national debt that has gotten so out of hand it sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours. the united st
the city. >> i heard a big -- they arrived. they fired. people were in the street injured. >> the streets carpeted with broken glass. windows blown out. smoke rising from the center of town. >> you could actually smell the burning from the glass. >> it looked like a war zone. there was people running around with blood from the head. it was kind of panic. >> bystanders raced to help the injured. worst hit, a government building, home to the prime minister. luckily he was not there. also damaged the headquarters of a tabloid newspaper, as well as smaller buildings here by. inside those buildings, the dead. and those too badly wounded to get out. rescue efforts last into the night. while everyone else in oslo was warned to stay away from the downtown area. then two hours later, on an island less than an hour away from the capital, a nightmare of a different kind. a man described as tall and blonde, who police linked to the earlier bombings, opened fire on a camp for teenagers learning about politics. the begin man was dressed as a police officers and opened fire with a semiautomatic weapon.
-term extension of the debt ceiling, that this take the debt ceiling to a point -- it's a big enough extension that it wouldn't have to be raised until after the november 2012 election. listen to the president and take a sense of his mood yesterday. actually i guess we do not have sound, fredricka. >> let me ask you, brianna, we know that john boehner was there. who else was at this meeting, so we can get a little color as to who was present and what the dynamics may have been? >> reporter: that's right. we're waiting to see if staff went in in the end as well. we don't have those details. but it was a smaller meeting. it was president obama and speaker john boehner hours after this thing has fallen apart and after weeks of a lot of cordiality between the speaker and the president. that was interesting to know a few hours later -- you had the minority leader in the house, nancy pelosi, was there. harry reid and mitch mcconnell were there. all key players because the understanding is that, of course, in the house, this will require votes from democrats and republicans. and right now, the ball i
to take on our deficit is with a balanced approach. one where the wealthiest americans and big corporations pay their fair share too. >> reporter: meanwhile the leader of the democratic majority in the senate, harry reid, has been working on a competing proposal. it would raise the debt ceiling and cut $2.7 trillion in spending. the savings would come from federal agencies and defense spending but avoid controversial changes to entitlement programs and the u.s. tax code. >> so now all the republicans have to do is say yes. unfortunately, the republicans who used to run the congress on the caucuses are being driven by the radical, right wing that is so in tune with the tea party. they want their leaders to ignore the american people as they're doing. they want their leaders to ignore the business leaders like the chamber of commerce that they're ignoring. and even a majority of republicans around this country want something to happen and they're refusing to do that. >> reporter: this afternoon reid's plan got official endorsement from the white house spokesman describing it as a
will be raised by next week, but the big question that everybody is asking is how is this going to happen, because it seems that all sides are digging in the heels and the white house continuing to insist that the president would veto a short term plan which is that plan put forth by speaker boehner that is as kelly mentioned would increase the debt ceiling in increments for the first time for six months, and press secretary jay carney, again, today saying that the president would veto that if it made it to his desk, and carney saying that bill would doubtfully pass the senate, but the president said in the remarks last night he does support the plan put forth by reid which would of course, decrease the deficit by $2.7 trillion and raise the deficit through 2012, and here is what press secretary jay carney had to say about the reid plan earlier today. >> it is a legitimate compromise measure. we believe it could pass the senate and the house if folks gave it a fair shake, and we appreciate senator reid putting it forward. the fact that there remains confidence in the world that washington
for republicans and no real cuts to entitlements so is that the big issues dodged in both of the plans, and the thing is, also, thomas, speaker boehner is a more short-term deal that speaker boehner says they do not want to pass, but what can be done reality and legislatively in the eight-day window that you mentioned. you have the two plans going on the own train, and jay carney said we need a train to reach the station. and it is interesting if harry reid can get cloture on his plan and whether or not one of these is the ones that are left at the end that one side has to stomach. it is looking certainly to be like that, thomas. >> nbc's luke russert on capitol hill, and we will wait and watch. thanks, luke. >> indeed. >>> and the u.s. is urging the imof the raise the ceiling and cut friending. they say that the u.s. should concentrate on entitlement reform. and now a new poll is that the u.s. citizens are losing faith in their lawmakers. 71% say they are not very confident or not confident at all. that is coming up with lawmakers and whether or not they will be able to reach a deal.
though it sounded like the president is done with the big examine grand bargain. the deal is not off the table because the speaker walked away. the president is happy to talk about a deal but talking about a smaller deal to raise the debt ceiling here at the white house. >>> president obama is again using his weekly address to call for cooperation in reaching a debt deal. he says he has agreed to program cuts that are unpopular with his party and wants to see republican leaders to do the same to resolve the issue. >> we need an approach that goes after we've and the budget and gets rid of projects that cost billions of dollars. we need to cuts to programs, cuts i wouldn't make under normal circumstances and an approach that asks everybody to do their part. >> the clock is ticking down to the august 2nd deadline when the government will default unless the cap is lifted. >> on monday, the millbrae school board will decide whether to put a second skood bond measure in front of voters. they approved measure "x" which provided $30 million to present re pair restrooms and upgrade fire alar
is on the left. >> a big difference in appearance. also, we can see here, it clings to the side of the glass. reminds me of my grandmother making raspberry jam. as here, ok, this is is much more flagrant, gooseberries. it's just generally lighter. >> so you can tell that that glass is more expensive. >> it's all about concentration. >> but would you buy such an expensive bottle? >> no. [laughing] no. certainly not. >> thanks so much. >> not to drink. no way. >> thank you very much, indeed. >> the new owner says he'll open the bottle to celebrate an anniversary. at around 10,000 pounds a glass, let's hope it doesn't disappoint. bbc news in central london. >> well that brings us to the end of today's broadcast. for all of us at "bbc world news america" thank you for watching. see you back here tomorrow. >> make sense of international news at bbc.com/news. >> funding was made possible by the freeman foundation of new york, stowe, vermont, and honolulu, newman's own foundation, and union bank. >> union bank has put its global financial strength to work for a wide range of companies, from small b
? >> there is a potential connection in the sense that if the u.s. were to default, we would see a big spike in long- term interest rates, so that would affect mortgage rates. it would affect car lending rates. it would affect business lending rates. so all of that could be quite problematic for the whole economy. so that's why, you know, certainly the treasury department and one has to say the federal reserve as well very worried about this. and want to avoid this at all costs. >> ifill: does it have to actually occur or is merely this delay, this debate, is that already putting its own drag on these areas of the economy? >> well, so far i say the uncertainty about what is exactly going to happen, what's going to get cut, what could be affected is giving a lot of consumers and businesses pause, if you will, making it quite risk-averse. and one of the reasons we're going through a soft patch, it's not the only reason, one of the reasons is this uncertainty. and what is triggering is risk aversion on the part of businesses and consumers. so already in a sense they're anticipating or worried about what migh
